If you are a fan of the politically charged humor of Lewis Black, you might be disappointed with this series.  The episodes aired on Comedy Central and contained on this disc feature the comedian as the judge handing out the cases to visiting comedians who then have to debate which is the more evil topic.

The episodes start with Black introducing the argument and each side gives an opening statement.  This leads to the Inquisition where Lewis asks questions of each side and then the Ripple of Evil where each side would explain what might happen to the world if their evil was allowed to run rampant.

On this disc there are eight episodes with eight debates, Weed vs Beer, You Tube vs. Porn, Oprah vs the Catholic Church, Paris Hilton vs. Dick Cheney Kim Jong Ill vs. Tila Tequila, Donald Trump vs. Viagara, American Idol vs. High School and Las Vegas vs. the Human Body.  The topics are interesting to hear debated and what’s more is to hear the thoughts from such comedic minds as Patton Oswalt, Greg Giraldo, Andrew Daly, Andy Kindler and Paul F Tompkins.

Overall these episodes are funny to watch but certainly not just for Lewis Black, the other comedians sharing the stage have their moments as well.  Overall a humerous set of episodes but certainly not for the easily offended, these are after all uncensored!
